Tigard High School

Tigard, Oregon

Owner: Tigard-Tualatin School District

Architect: Bassetti Architects

Contractor: Pence Construction

Originally constructed in the 1950s and gradually expanded by a series of 10 additions, the older portions of the two-story, 140,000-square-foot Tigard High School no longer met the District’s safety and educational standards. The re-designed school added Technology, Art, and Business classrooms, provided security and seismic safety improvements, and included a new Commons space. The team used ASCE 41 for the seismic retrofit while new construction consisted primarily of composite structural steel. Additionally, cold-formed steel and supplemental structural steel cladding provided a backup support system. Phased over two school years, the construction for the $51 million modernization was completed in 2020.
